MY New Orleans isn't like this!
on 5 June 1998
New Orleans is my favorite city on the planet. She has everything, and you either love her at once or you never understand her at all.
What Sandra Brown fails to realize is that New Orleans embraces all walks of life with the same enthusiasm. Yes, Pinky was a crook and a bad guy, but in New Orleans, he'd fit in just fine with the elite.
I might have bought the good cop takes on the bad guy in some other city, but, not in New Orleans. In New Orleans, they sit side by side at the Acme Oyster Bar.
Besides missing New Orleans' character all together, Brown's story really isn't too tightly woven. I didn't really feel sorry for Pinky's trapped wife and I really didn't much like the crusading cop.
To me, this book just flat misses the mark.
